Trust for Nature Exception for Hunters

"Protected" Property? Think again.

Documents obtained by RVOTDS through Freedom of Information show that hunt clubs have obtained eye-watering sums of public money to buy and "maintain" property. One such property is Heart Morass, Gippsland, one of four waterways tested by EPA which had ducks with high lead levels. 

Worse, documents (which the hunt club fought for twelve months to suppress), reveal that Heart Morass is "protected" by a Trust for Nature covenant. Trust for Nature has been notified of the cruelty involved in bird hunting, the impact to threatened species, and the impact of toxic lead and plastic components from shotguns pumped into the environment. We hope to see Trust for Nature act accordingly and demand cessation of hunting at Heart Morass.
